UPCOMING EVENTS:
OCTOBER 4, 2020
Welcome Back Kick-Off!

PARENTS/GUARDIANS of our Four Mile Children,

We as the Children’s Ministry team are unbelievably excited to be kicking-off the return of our in-person time of worship for young children. Though the past several months have brought many changes, and we have deeply missed serving and loving your children face-to-face, we are ready to start anew with invigorated energy and a heightened desire after our Father!

 

We recognize that with this return comes an innovative look into health and safety practices, but our main focus will remain on Jesus- His Word and the plans He has for our ministry as a whole. We will dive into the Bible in a child-friendly way, participate in individualized activities, share prayer together, worship in all of our favorite ways, and grow in our spiritual development and relationship with Christ.

 

We are kicking off Nursery (ages 0-2) and Kids Church (PreK-3rd Grade) on Sunday, October 4, 2020.  For now, Children’s Ministry will only be operating during the 10:30 am worship time, not at 9:15 am. For information regarding ministry for 4th Grade and beyond, please visit https://www.fourmile.org/students/ to get connected. Our volunteers are SO excited to welcome you back! Below are some changes/updates to be aware of:

 

Nursery:

  • Nursery has a new space! The Nursery (ages 0-2) is now located on the Basement Level, in the same “pod” as the rest of Kids Church. The Nursery will be located in the former 2-3rd Grade Classroom. 
  • Check-in will now be available on the lap top at the Welcome Desk. 

 

Curriculum/Large Group Worship (Kids Church):

  • Children will watch the Bible Story via Orange curriculum and will praise Jesus through music each week. 
  • Children will have individual “sit spots” spread out across the Large Group Area to create social distance.
  • Individual activities within the classroom during Small Group time will reiterate the Biblical teaching and will provide a safe and socially distanced approach to learning and growth. 

 

Health/Safety:

  • If your child or anyone in your household is experiencing a fever or any other signs of illness, we ask that your family please worship from home until no longer symptomatic. 
  • All Children’s Ministry volunteers and all children ages 2 and over will be required to wear masks for the entirety of their time in Nursery and Kids Church. 
  • Children will be socially distanced as much as possible, but with limited space, we will not be able to maintain 6 feet between students in our PreK-3rd Grade classroom.
  • Classrooms will be sanitized before and after use each week, and hand sanitizer will be available for use. 
  • Children will be required, at all levels of Children’s Ministry, to be registered by a Parent/Guardian/Approved Individual at drop off, receive a Check-in Tag, and use that same Tag when picking up the child later.  
    • *If the tag is misplaced, Photo ID will be required to pick them up.* 
  • There will be one entrance for Children’s Ministry (Nursery & Kids) – through the sanctuary, and down the back stairwell.

 

 

Next, our age brackets have shifted due to the changing needs of volunteers as well as the spaces which we have available. Nursery (ages 0-2) and Kids Church (age 3-3rd Grade) will all be located on the Basement Level in the Kids Church area. PreK-3rd Grade students will temporarily be combined into one classroom. 

 

The age ranges and locations where the Ministries will be taking place are listed below:

Nursery

Ages 0 – 2

“Kids Town”, Basement Level, former 2-3rd Grade Classroom

Kids Church

Ages 3 – 3rd Grade

“Kid Town”; Basement Level, PreK-3rd Grade combined in the former PreK-1st Classroom 

 

We are grateful for your partnership in bringing God’s Word to the hearts of your children!  If you have absolutely any questions/concerns regarding the changes and updates mentioned above, please feel free to reach out via email courtney@fourmile.org

We look forward to another incredible year in ministry!
